“Was pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

I am a big fan of small little diners such as this. Everytime I visit places such as swale rock they always have a great atmosphere and great food. The fisherman's bread and home made bumbleberry jam are a must try. The portions are great and you won't be leaving hungry if you have the hungry man's breakfast or an omelet te that's half the size of the plate!

“Great stop for breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

If you want a great breakfast this is a must. If you are not worried about calories or want to treat yourself order the fishermans bread. Also served on menu home made jam and bread.

“Great home made bread”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Bakery yeast bread makes great toast and their Fisherman's bread is great too. Is very good with their raspberry jam ... it is a little too sweet for my taste but then I notice when there is too much sugar in stuff because I am diabetic. Eggs are good, too many potatoes in their hashbrowns and french fries, I like my hasbrowns a little more brown. Or I just forgoe the hasbrowns for the toast ... whether you choose white or brown ... it is still great. Had their Swale Rock Fettuccini with salad which was very good. Pasta had clams, shrimp (or was it prawns?) and scallops, my niece tried the Seafood fettucini which had fish instead of the clams ... fish was halibut and my niece did not like it as much.

“Fantastic Fishermans bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

If you love eggs benedict, this is the place for you. Simply delicious. Then take a short stroll to the Harbour key, and enjoy the inlet.
